reminding voters that in a speech, romney had written off 47% of american voters. reporting live in hempstead, new york, i'm randall pinkston, back to you. >> thank you. i guess it doesn't matter who won. it matters if anyone was swayed. independent voters, have you heard anything on that? were people touched by this debate? is it going to make a difference? >> reporter: well, you know, it's too early to know. we have had a couple of snap polls one showing that president obama won the debate, the cbs snap poll 30% range. cnn stop? poll has it at 49%. but it's going to take time for all of the information to shall we say settle out for people to parse through what they said and what some of the fact checkers are finding out. there were shadings of truth. there were some outright contradictions. a lot of things to sort through. of course, there's also that nonquantitative aspect of any
6:04 am
debate. how the candidates came through emotionally, what kind of impression they made. that's an intangible. and it's much too early to know what the polls are going to do about that. >> all right. randall pinkston live in new york, thank you. well, the national poll gave the president a 7-point edge for the debate. he fared much better in california. 56% said mr. obama won. 32% said governor romney won and 12% said it was a draw. the poll was conducted exclusively for eyewitness news. twitter users sent more than 7 million messages during the town hall style forum. the moments that generated the most responses included a question to romney about immigration. the president criticized romney on china and romney's response to a question about tax rates. be sure to check our exclusive presidential forum on every day. the candidates weigh in on a different issue every day. 6:04. hundreds gathered under the city hall rotunda in san

6:09 am
and the limits and, you know, what to do, safety-wise, how to get off and unharmed. >> reporter: this is the team's 8th day practicing on the bay and also the strongest tide of the year. the wind did major damage to the catamaran snapping up the 13-story tall wing into pieces. oracle team usa says this is the first major incidents with the newer longer boats. live in san francisco at pier 80, cate caugiran, cbs 5. >> thank you. today consumer advocates plan to protest the choice of mediator for talks on the san bruno pipeline disaster. the state puc has chosen former senator george mitchell to guide negotiations between the state, pg&e and the city of san bruno over compensation. but that's being called a back room deal by the utility reform network. it cites the fact mitchell's law firm has represented major utilities before. the giants and cardinals back on today. game 3 of the national league championship series will kick off 1:00 our time.

6:16 am
friends and family out there. a 4.0 struck west of portland, maine last night. at first some thought it was a big explosion. it was felt as far away as boston and connecticut. there are reports of some minor damage including some cracks in a house. this is the second strongest quake in maine's history. experts say that's because of the east coast geology. the effects of earthquakes can be felt in an area 10 times larger than quakes of a similar size here on the west coast. today is the 23rd anniversary of of the loma prieta anniversary in northern california. at noon today san francisco's department of emergency management will hold a press conference in union square. officials there will commemorate the deadly quake that happened in 1989 and also encouraged participation in a drill tomorrow called the great california shake-out. 6:16. let's check the weather. it's going to be heating up more today. >> i know. 90 is that right? can we see you over there? >> i think we'll see 90s in the bay area even some 70s mid-
6:17 am
70s at the coastline. so yes, today is going to be one of those gorgeous day where we have some major changes over the next 7 days. outside now, mostly clear skies. a little sea haze out there. temperature has been jumping all over the map this morning. 70s in fairfield dropped back down to 60. the air is warm above the surface and will mix down so everybody is warming up today but there are some big changes coming in our direction as we'll see the first major cold front and rain making its way into the bay area next week. right now fire danger high especially into the sacramento valley. red flag warnings, above 1,000 feet gusty winds to 30 miles per hour with low humidity combining with a hot temperature, causes high fire danger. traveling around the u.s. looking good. right out of san francisco, great today. you will see sunny skies about 82. around the country maybe some trouble spots into houston. slight chance of some showers there. in chicago, expect some thunderstorms. and by the way talking about the giants game today there's a
6:18 am
90% chance of some thunderstorms there today. we could see some delays in that game. temperatures around the bay today looking good under sunny skies. 84 degrees in san jose. but look at the coastline. how about that? mid-70s into half moon bay. and pacifica. east bay temperatures 80s and low 90s. and inside the bay beautiful in san francisco, about 80 degrees this afternoon. 72 in daly city. and about 77 degrees in bodega bay. next couple of days, we'll keep the heat on and start to cool off late in the day tomorrow. more fog on the way for friday. cooler temperatures over the weekend and next week, yup, here comes that storm system maybe rain on monday and tuesday then maybe another storm right after that, elizabeth. >> here she comes, the storm door is opening. in the meantime, we're nice and dry outside but still following a couple of problem spots including across the san mateo bridge. it's going against the commute so probably not huge delays but eastbound 92 leaving foster city there is an overturn accident so at this point we are not hearing about injuries but the car is on its roof.
6:19 am
so they are definitely possible. and in our last traffic report we saw an emergency crew in those westbound lanes heading to the scene. so again that's eastbound 92 right past the high-rise. let's go to our maps show you what else is going on westbound 580. first towards the bay bridge where they just turned on the metering lights at 6:11. so now we are seeing delays in those outer cash lanes and middle fastrak lanes. it's stacking up beyond the overcrossing. westbound 580 brake lights leaving the altamont pass. that's traffic and weather together every 10 minutes. back to you guys. >> thank you. new this morning, police in denver believe a fire at a bar was set to hide five murders. the fire was first reported in east denver at about 2 a.m. local time. four women and one man were found dead inside. the police chief says it appears the victim died of injuries not connected to the fire. and the five were likely the only people inside when the fire started. a mighty rough road ahead for lance armstrong.

6:31 am
their favor. it was blowing in one direction and the current in the opposite and they tried to turn the boat. then the boat overturned along with some of the 13 crewmembers. >> creates a very steep wake and it's very easy to stick the noses in on the boat and capsizes occur. >> not sure what happened. and we'll have to review the data and the video. >> reporter: now, a few hours later that boat was completely in the water and the wing that's about 13 stories tall was thrashed along with the hull. if you take a look at the map you can see how far the current pushed the catamaran, past the golden gate bridge and at least 7 miles out to sea. the time now says this is a major setback for them but it is an important lesson that they will learn moving forward. america's cup says this won't affect the race schedule next year. cate caugiran, cbs 5. oakland officials are showing signs of a compromise in the face of a federal

really going after it showing a lot more passion than they did in their first debate and cbs news reporter randall pinkston joins us live from hempstead, new york, with reaction from round number 2. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. there was a very contentious debate last night. president obama and mitt romney went at it on a host of issues at times saying that the other wasn't telling the truth. it was a very different exchange from the first debate. president obama and mitt romney wasted little time going after each other in the second debate. >> there were a whole bunch of oil companies -- >> i had a question and the question was, how much did you cut them by? >> you want me to answer? >> i'm happy to answer the question.

6:37 am
where the public had an opportunity to ask questions and in that cbs news snap poll, 55% of uncommitted voters said they thought president obama had answered their questions, nearly as many 49% said they thought mitt romney was responsive. reporting live in hempstead, new york, i'm randall pinkston. back to you. >> randall, it was certainly compelling to watch this debate and they were trying to appeal to the undecided voters. do you think they were a little too aggressive and maybe turned some people off? >> reporter: of course, i wouldn't be the one to make that judgment. we'll be finding out what undecided voters and all voters think about this debate on election day. let's point this out. that president obama after his first debate had to come back strong. what he was doing to try to get votes was to re-energize the base. that job was begun last week by vice president joe biden. he was accused of being too aggressive, too interrupting too often. but the democrats loved it. and there may have been a turnaround in the polls for the
6:38 am
democrats or at least a stopping of the loss of support. for governor romney, he had a strong performance the first debate. he had a strong performance last night. and, of course, they are hoping to keep the momentum going. what happens in the days leading up to the election, we'll see. >> we'll see what happens in round 3 with bob schieffer from cbs news in the third debate. thank you, randall pinkston. while the national poll gave the president a 7-point edge in the debate, he fared better in california, a democratic state. 56% said the president was the clear winner. 32% felt romney won while 12% called it a draw. the poll was conducted by surveyusa exclusively for eyewitness news. >> so who do you think won a second presidential debate and why? we want to thank janet for chiming in. she said, if i wanted to watch people argue, i'd rather watch the real housewives of new jersey. comment on facebook or twitter, or email us at
6:39 am so she apparently did not like it. >> it is a debate, though. the santa clara 49ers stadium isn't even finished yet but it's already getting close to being awarded a super bowl. kcbs radio's matt bigler is down in santa clara where they are cautious with excitement around the mission city right now. i think it looks good. what do you think, matt? >> reporter: well, there's a lot of optimism. it's hard to believe that the super bowl -- the super bowl could be played right here in santa clara in just a couple of years especially since as you mentioned the 49ers stadium is still under construction. you can see the steel beams illuminated by lights this morning. workers hard at work even before dawn to make sure this thing gets completed on schedule. yesterday we did find out that san francisco is in the running, is a finalist for the 2016 or the 2017 super bowls. the city obviously would host the super bowl. it would host the events of the super bowl. but it would be played right here in santa clara.
6:40 am
this morning we talked to santa clara mayor jaime matthews and he said that even though san francisco is behind this bid, his city stands to benefit greatly. >> it's a great deal for sunnyvale, mountain view, milpitas, all the cities around here because there will be lots of exciting things going on to celebrate coming to the bay super bowl coming to the bay for the first time in 25 years. this is a great team to showcase everything that the bay area has to offer from the golden gate to silicon valley. >> reporter: a 2010 study by beacon economics found that a super bowl would generate between $300 million and $500 million for the host city. that's people staying in hotels, eating out in restaurants, and having parties that sort of thing. this is not a done deal. the final decision will be made next may. nfl owners will be making that decision. san francisco is competing against miami for the 2016
6:41 am
super bowl. and if they lose that bid, they will compete against houston for the 2017 super bowl. obviously, the first choice is 2016 because that would be super bowl l. roman numeral l. and by all accounts that will be an epic event. live in santa clara, i'm matt bigler for cbs 5. >> thank you. the san francisco giants are in solution today where they will play game 3 of 5 of the national league championship series. the team worked out at busch stadium last night after arriving there. marco scutaro is doing bet after st. louis slugger matt holliday plowed into him in game 2 in the 1st inning. >> it feels better. >> you heard from the guy himself. he is expected to play game 3 at 1:00 p.m. in st. louis today.
